I'm a huge podcast fan. Perhaps that's why I started one of my own! I have undoubtedly listened to thousands of hours of podcasts. I gobble up spoken word content like it's my job... and in fact, I listen to podcasts almost everywhere except while at work!
I listen while I walk my dog in the mornings, while I work out, while I cook, while I clean, while I garden, while I get ready for work, while I'm driving....uh, yeah, so basically all the time I'm not actually interacting with another human being. I love some of them so much, I've listened to their entire catalogue (of 300+ episodes) 3 times.
Yeah, I'm that girl.
Anyhow, right now I'm listening to a few that I really love. If you're looking for something to listen to (while waiting for our new episodes to come out), then try one of these!
Don't play DnD? No problem. Don't like DnD? Not a problem either. These four friends are about the funniest sons-of-guns I've ever heard. The premise: four dads from our world on their way to soccer practice are sucked into a vortex to the Forgotten Realms in a quest to rescue their lost sons. They drive a minivan, and exude powerful dad energy. Plus, one of them is played by a woman and she fucking rocks. They all do, but I just want to be Beth May in my next life. Seriously though, episode 6 I laughed harder and for longer than I'd laughed in years.
Thank goodness I found this podcast. Deborah Francis-White and her guests have been a source of guidance and giggles for the past few years. Apart from being hilarious, it is insightful, real, and honest about what it's like to be a feminist in today's world, amidst the "hypocrisies and insecurities that undermine" it. Listening to this podcast has made me a better advocate at my own workplace - I see dumb shit and I call it like it is now (more of the time), instead of just getting frustrated over it. Don't fing tell me to put my "earmuffs" on, this is a g-damn business meeting and it is 2019!!!! Anyhow, DFW is amazing and if I can't be Beth May I would also love to be her <3
I listen to soooo many others, but those are my rec's for now. What are you listening to right now? (Other than us, of course!)
